UT Austin | Blanton museum of art

Located at the southern edge of the UT Austin campus, the Blanton Museum of Art bridges the campus with the cultural and political centers of Austin. The landscape design for the new museum sought to create a visual connection to Austin's civic center with the planting of over one hundred Cedar Elm trees carefully placed to frame the view of the nearby State Capital building. A grand stairway was designed to create a formal gateway to the campus on its southern edge. In the evening, internally illuminated bronze seatwalls orient visitors towards the museum entry and provide a unique nighttime identity for museum special events.

Work performed at PWP Landscape Architecture. In collaboration with Booziotis & Company Achitects and Gojer & Associates Civil Engineers.

Completion:  2006
